Audio Patches:

1) The beginning of the soundboard was missing, the first 16 minutes and 22.334 seconds was filled in with audio from the Menke (AUD1) source. This includes all of Dire Wolf, Uncle Bobo Intro, On The Road Again and the first 5 minutes and 33.154 seconds of To Lay Me Down. For the Matrix/DTS, the Rolfe (AUD2) was used for the audience tracks for the mix.

2) Between Cassidy and I've Been All Around This World, 40.609 seconds were missing from the Menke Audience (AUD1) (and the Rolfe Audience (AUD2)) source and was filled in with audio from the Soundboard (SBD) source.

3) At the beginning of 2nd set, 09.919 seconds were missing from the Soundboard (SBD) source and was filled in with audio from the Rolfe (AUD2) source. This includes first notes of Alabama Getaway.

4) Between I Know You Rider and Looks Like Rain, 31.903 seconds were missing from the Soundboard (SBD) source and was filled in with audio from the Menke (AUD1) source.

5) Between Fire On The Mountain and Estimated Prophet, 34.495 seconds were missing from the Soundboard (SBD) source and was filled in with audio from the Rolfe (AUD2) source.

6) About 15 seconds into Jerry/Drums Jam, 17.680 seconds were missing from the Soundboard (SBD) source and was filled in with audio from the Rolfe (AUD2) source.

7) About 2 minutes and 15 seconds into Drums Jam, 19.423 seconds were missing from the Soundboard (SBD) source and was filled in with audio from the Rolfe (AUD2) source.

8) About 4 minutes and 45 seconds into Drums Jam, 35.755 seconds were missing from the Soundboard (SBD) source and was filled in with audio from the Rolfe (AUD2) source.

9) At the end of Drums, 03.315 seconds were missing from the Menke (AUD1) source and was filled in with audio from the Rolfe (AUD2) source.

10) Between Sunshine Daydream and Satisfaction, 1 minute and 17.366 seconds were missing from the Soundboard (SBD) source and was filled in with audio from the Menke (AUD1) source. This includes first few notes of Satisfaction.

11) NOTE: The Menke Audience came in 24/96 format and the Dave McCallum DVD came as 16/48 format while the Soundboard and Rolfe Audience came as 16/44 format. Using R8brain Pro, the Menke Aud was reduced to 16/48 and the Soundboard and Rolfe Audience were expanded to 16/48 so as to facilitate ending up with 16/48 matrix to use on upcoming video. After matrix was mixed, R8Brain Pro was used to reduce matrix and soundboard to cd compatible 16/44.

12) Matrix\DTS were synced using the video as a reference. Both sources were well matched soundwise with the soundboard and Rolfe Audience ran slightly slow as compared with the video and the Menke audience was just slightly fast.

Reviews

Reviewer: barreramusic - - August 18, 2012
Subject: Amazing set list
I can't wait to hear this whole show matrixed. Some great songs--an acoustic 1980s 1st set to start (can't go wrong there), a china rider in another set and my favorite combo, scarlet fire, in the next. This is gonna be something. I'll get back to a review in time. This is really just a bookmark, so to speak, for me... BUT now I've listened to tone quality a little and compared a little-- it seems that the audience is so loud that the SBs sound like matrices, so... Hmmm... I wonder if there is a complete board.?!
